The Arkansas River delivers Class III to Class V overnight whitewater rafting trips starting at 7 years old. Take your family on 24 hours in Browns Canyon for the perfect family trip or family reunion. After rafting for a couple hours set up camp and enjoy the remainder of the evening on a quick hike or sitting by the campfire then sleep under the stars in this exclusive location along the Arkansas River.
A more advanced trip would be the 2 Day Advanced on our Class IV-V sections of the Arkansas River.
